First reading, balling, is about 7%
Second reading, potential alcohol, comes in at 3.5%
And the specific gravity, or in this case, 'final gravity' is 1.027 or so at 60' F.
Plugging these numbers into my handy dandy beer calculator, I am given an alcohol content of 4.8% by volume with just over half of the sugars fermented. Upon tasting my test tube sample, I must say that I like it! It's thick, definate stout characteristics.
Dark and a little sweet as well. This will only get better with carbonation. So this week's quest is for bottle caps!
